Review
Clear pale gold, with frothy, short-lived mousse and a stream of pinpoint bubbles that literally lasts for hours. Delicious "biscuity" and milk-chocolate scents over fresh apples. Full and rich in flavor, creamy and tart; tart green apples in a long finish. Complex and well-balanced wine, a very good buy, at least by the pricey standards of real Champagne.

Rating
93 Points – Top 100 2012
The ONLY Champagne in the Wine Spectator Top 100 2012
Elegant, with rich base notes of toasted brioche & smoke adding depth, this integrates finely honed acidity, detailed texture & flavors of black cherry purée, apple tarte Tatin, kumquat & grated ginger. Provides a creamy, mineral tinged finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
~ Wine Spectator, Dec. 2012
